Grüezi Expats! Soon after arriving in Zurich from London, I remember feeling overwhelmed by the amount of change I had to deal with. Although growing up as an hotelier’s daughter meant that I was very much used to living the expatriate lifestyle, moving to Zurich as an adult was completely different to my childhood experiences. At the beginning it took me a while to meet and get to know people, and I didn’t have a network of friends I could tap into to help me find my way around the city. The language was difficult, which often made me a little nervous when running errands, because I was never sure if the people at the store, the hairdresser, the restaurant, would speak English. There were so many things I didn’t know about living in Switzerland and this inexperience ended up prolonging my adjustment period. There are many great products and services offered in Switzerland that can help you ease your way into Swiss life and make your life far more enjoyable here in the long run. Many of these were born out of the needs and necessities of expats themselves, but how do you get to know of these places if you have just arrived and don’t really have any social connections? The problem I faced when I first arrived was that I only got to know all the great things this country has to offer through a painstakingly slow process if investigating expat websites and through hours of internet research. The reason I created The Expat Card (TEC) was to provide you with an easy to use resource for finding products and services you may need or seek as a newcomer or a well-establish local expat, while at the same time providing exclusive offers ensuring your experience of Switzerland is a fabulous one. I hope you will enjoy the card as much as I do! Enjoy Switzerland through The Expat Card, Candice Olgun


F.A.Q. About TEC Is The Expat Card a credit card? No, it may look like a credit card, but it is simply a card personalized with your name, card number, and an expiry date. What is The Expat Card? The Expat Card is a lifestyle offers card that gives cardholders exclusive discounts on products and services from companies in and around the Zurich area, online, and a few with branches in other cities. The main idea of the card is to introduce expats, through the offers, to all the great products and services available to them in Zurich. Many of us find it hard to settle into life in Zurich, and sometimes it is the simple things that can make it the hardest: Not knowing where to go out for a nice meal, a good manicure, a spa treatment, a show, etc. The Expat Card opens up a whole new world of experiences to you! How does the card work? It’s simple: after purchasing a card, you go to www.theexpatcard.ch. In the Products and Services section, the offers have been broken down into categories to suit all interests. You need only click on the offers you are interested in to see how the company wants you to redeem the offer. With the majority of businesses, you need only show the card at the point of purchase. Some companies decide to leave an offer all year long, but some may change to suit different periods, so it is always good to see what is new and on offer. All new offers are listed on the homepage for easy notification, as well as on our Newsletter (which you can sign up for on the website), Facebook and Twitter pages. Will the card automatically renew my subscription every year? No, you just pay for a yearly membership, and enjoy the card for a year from the date you receive your card. Once the card expires, you can throw it away. It is your choice whether or not you buy a new subscription, so there is no stress of having to cancel a subscription or be charged penalty fees. For more information about the card, or if you have any further questions, please contact us at info@theexpatcard.ch 04


How do I get a card? Just visit www.theexpatcard.ch and go to the Get a Card page. Once you apply online you will receive your card within 14 days with a payment slip. Please note the Swiss Postal System is quite different to many places in the World. If your name is not on the actual mailbox of the postal address, the card will be returned to us and we will have no way of sending it out to you. Therefore, please only apply for the card once you have a permanent address. Corporate rates are available on request at info@theexpatcard.ch
